Here's a riddle or puzzle for you to solve. Someone you and I have in common though He is not common.

There is one that sticks closer than a brother,
and He has already proved His love,
He has never lied,
and can always be trusted.

He pierces the dark with His marvelous light,
and shines so much brighter than the sun,
He will never leave,
nor will He ever forsake.

He is the first-born of many children,
and the eldest son of our Father,
He's the King of kings,
and the Lord of lords indeed.

He is well able to bare our burdens,
and take care of His very own,
He is our example,
and through Him we are able.

Even the wind and waves obey His commands,
and His words healed many blind and lame,
He came to divide,
and teach right from wrong.

He laid down His life that all can accept His gift,
and have eternal life in Him,
life with the Father,
and not being separated.

He's looking for a bride who seeks her Beloved,
and holds fast to Him with all her heart,
neither to doubt nor fear,
but to embrace completely.

He stands at the head of our Father's Army,
and leads us into many battles,
He's worthy of praise,
as well as glory and honor.

If He is for us who can be against us,
and in weakness in Him we are strong,
though He does not force,
and bids us to come freely.

Well have you figured it out?
Have you guessed?
Do you know who this is talking about?
Have you also accepted the Father's gift and made Him yours?
Yes, it is Jesus Christ, and I hope you have made Him our mutual friend, and so much more.

This is a beautiful poem with a lot of heart in it.

I don't think you needed the first sentence or the last paragraph.

Your words are so lovely and powerful, they stand on their own strength.

I love this truth you stated: "Someone you and I have in common though He is not common. Amen to that! This poem was a good read. God Bless!

I felt the passion of your words beginning with the second stanza and building to the next to the last. Then it kind of seemed to fizzle at the end. I agree that this would have been a stronger poem without the first and last stanzas. The middle is terrific!
